Angela's recipe for Crock-Pot Berry Cobbler

Finding Love in Sun Valley, Idaho was originally set in Oregon where I grew up picking blackberries along the river. When I changed the setting to Idaho per the publisher's request, I had to change the blackberries to huckleberries, which is what my kids will remember picking at the family cabin during their childhood. In my book, the characters mention making cobbler, so here's a cobbler recipe that combines the best of both worlds--blackberries and huckleberries. Whether you're from Oregon or Idaho or on the other side of the country, you're sure to find love with this delicious, easy dessert.

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups blackberries
2 cups huckleberries/blueberries
3/4 cups water

Combine flour, 3/4 cups sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Combine eggs, milk, and oil then stir into dry ingredients until moist. Spread batter evenly on the bottom of a greased slow cooker. In a saucepan, combine berries, water, and remaining sugar. Bring to a boil then pour over batter. Cover and cook on high for 2-2 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted into the batter comes out clean. Turn Crock-Pot off and let stand for thirty minutes before serving. Yield: 6 servings
